to financing here. it's politically controversial. president clinton proposed taking some t.a.r.p. money and providing financing to manufacturers, but even if we're not directly loaning companies, manufacturers money, what we can do is at least provide the right tax incentives that if they are willing to export or manufacture, that they have those incentives. the final point i'd say is there's an awful law in the world trade organization which allows companies -- countries that have indirect taxation, the value added tax, to exempt their exporters from that taxation, and if you have the corporate tax like we do, we are not allowed to exempt our manufacturers from that tax. now, we established the world trade organization at a time where we really didn't think anyone was going to compete, and we wanted to encourage other countries to build their industries, but the world has changed, and i think on a bipartisan basis, we need to push for a change in those wto, the sanction between indirect and direct taxation when it comes to tax credits for exports. sure? >> if you've come across compani

is that if the threshold goes up to that level, the top income tax rate would go all the way back up to the clinton era rate of 39.6%. not some mid point of 37% talked about a couple of weeks ago. secondly, that it would be accompanied by more revenue from the estate tax than is happening under current policy. remember, current policy is 35% tax on estates of $35 million or more. democrats are going to be insisting on somewhat more revenue than that, if not all the way up to the level in president obama's budget. finally, that an agreement would include a significant extension of unemployment benefits. remember, there are 2 million people who would lose about $300 a week if this fiscal cliff passes and there's no deal whatsoever. guys, back to you in d.c. >> all right. john harward, thanks for keeping us posted. we're about six minutes before the bell rings in the final session of 2012. let's bring in matt. good to have you with us. the futures are not too bad. we're coming off five straight losing streaks. on friday we saw the vix post the low of the session. what do you think it will happen today? >>
